Babar Azam, the Pakistan limited-overs skipper, put his team's dwindling T20I fortunes in recent times down to experimentation with their combinations, and hopes the experience in the team management will benefit them in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup, reports ICC-Cricket.com.

Pakistan were leading the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings for 27 months. From the end of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2016 in April to the start of 2019, they won 29 of their 33 T20Is, boasting of a win percentage of 87.87%. But a poor record in 2019, when they lost eight of their 12 T20Is, saw them slip to fourth place in the latest rankings.

“Yes, we did lose a few matches and our ranking has unfortunately gone down," he admitted to presspersons while preparing for their series in England. I’m confident that we will do well in the T20 series against England and improve our ranking.”
